Thinking of and spelling out a word has never been so challenging and so fun. In this whirlwind of a game, players attempt to spell a word that matches the four categories (Same Name, Mix Up, On Topic, and Rhyme Around) before their opponents do and smack the buzzer for the win. Short words are your friend in this tile game but finding those letters in the pile in front of you is your enemy at times. With a limited number of letters in the pile, others may have used your letters before you could get to them so you'll need to quickly think of a new word.

Learning how to play Pik Qwik is also a breeze and easy to understand. The only strategy is spell your word fast! You'll have a blast playing this game as a family or with friends. Game comes with a clear locking container with 2 compartments for easy storage. The buzzer is even integrated into the storage case.

Board Game Capital's Review:
Pik Qwik GameWho knew spelling would be so fun? Pik Qwik is a fun little game that gets the whole family racing to complete a word that fits on the category cards. We thought the cards looked great other than two big things: the topic is kind of hard to see and why did they put two different languages on the same side? You have to hunt for the right side of the card to read and it is very confusing. Either have a different version of the game in a different language or put the other language on the opposite side of the card in a different color or something. This made game play very cumbersome and even harder for younger kids.

The container the game comes in is really clever and made from some thick clear plastic! The buzzer sits on top, the tiles are in the middle and the cards with the rules are on the bottom. We also have two complaints about the container: the buzzer is completely exposed so our buzzer broke after dropping the container once, and the bottom section twists off the opposite way from what you expect. Why they all couldn’t twist off the same direction is beyond us but you’ll have to pay close attention to the arrow on the bottom to know which direction to twist.

Once you get playing, this game is fun, fast paced, easy to learn how to play and doesn’t take all afternoon to finish. It would be cool if you got some bonus points for spelling a longer word but we like the simplicity of just spelling something fast. Sometimes any word that fits is better than no word or a short word at all.

Pik Qwik CardsThe game rules look like a card and fit nicely in the bottom compartment. They explain the game rules very nicely and are broken up into logical sections as the game rules accordion out. Be gentle with them because they get thin where to two circles meet. There are no graphics on the game rules but we didn’t feel like they were needed since things were so easy to understand. We did, however, have to cross reference them a bit the first time around to make sure we were playing the categories correct.

If you want a fun, simple game that you can pull out and play in minutes that involves some fast thinking and spelling, then Pik Qwik is your game. For the price and the game experience you’ll get, we think it is a great deal and definitely a game you’ll play off and on throughout the years.
